This is very cool.  I never realized there were underground caverns under Montreal.  A whole new area has been discovered.

Have they filled it with raw sewage yet?
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

If I had a nickle for every person that wanted Montreal to fall into it's own hole, I'd be a very rich person.

We should fortify it!


Stories about caves always remind me of this story of someone getting stuck upside down 125 below the surface. Pretty sad.

The St-Leonard caverns are actually world famous and speleologists come from everywhere to explore and study them. I remember visiting the near ones with my High School class when I was young. It was pretty impressive, and I gather the new section just discovered is even more impressive.

If I had a nickle for every person that wanted Montreal to fall into it's own hole, I'd be a very rich person.

They can both disappear so far as I'm concerned.

Maybe time to finally let the GTA go its own way. Province of Toronto? Where's the door?!  :)
